Affectionately referred to as 'flat chicken' by my family, this recipe is a favorite! My mom would make it once a week and now my kids and I carry on the tradition. It is flavorful, easy and goes well with rice or pasta.

Directions

  1. Beat eggs and black pepper together in a bowl. Place bread crumbs in a separate, shallow bowl.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip each piece of chicken breast into the beaten eggs, and then press into the bread crumbs. Brush loose bread crumbs off the chicken, and place into the hot oil. Pan fry until golden brown on each side, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Remove chicken from heat.
  3. Arrange chicken pieces on serving platter, and drizzle a small amount of the caper juice over the chicken. Top with the capers, and serve with lemon wedges.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This was tasty. I used panko bread crumbs, added salt and pepper to the chicken and pan fried in a mixture of olive oil and butter until golden brown and cooked through. I squeezed lemon juice onto the chicken along with the caper juice and served it with salad.

Loved this recipe. I had done a couple of tweaks to it. I floured the chicken before I dipped the chicken into the egg then bread crumbs. I also did as one of the other reviews had suggested. After I cooked all the chicken I added about 1 tsp. of butter into the non-stick fry pan to which I added 1 tsp. flour. Once incorporated I added about ¼ cup milk, cappers, 1 tbsp. capper juice and 1 tsp. lemon juice. Mixed and allowed to simmer for a couple of minutes. Family loved it thanks Lisawas for this recipe. Will be doing again.
